( - Judge Brett Kavanaugh, nomimated by President Donald Trump to the Supreme Court, sent a letter today to Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley (R.-Iowa) and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D.-Calif.) declaring that he would not be "intimidated" into withdrawing from his nomination and that he was looking forward to testifying under oath before the Judiciary Committeee on Thursday.

I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process. The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out."
